Finally, the symposium will focus on the current state and developments in sample preparation as well as software for neutron crystallography.


Participation in the symposium is free of charge and open to anyone interested in applying neutron diffraction in macromolecular crystallography. PhD students are highly encouraged to participate and contribute with projects that may benefit from the future use of neutron diffraction.

ESS Neutron Protein Crystallography 2013

Aarhus University, Denmark

21-22 March 2013

The symposium will focus on the methods and results that can be obtained by neutron macromolecular crystallography and will provide an opportunity to discuss future uses of the strong neutron source that will be provided by the European Spallation Source (ESS), planned to open in Lund, Sweden in 2019.


Scientific sessions will cover the use of neutron diffraction in the study of enzymatic mechanisms (from both academic and industry points of view), protein-water interactions, as well as  the  use  of neutron diffraction to study biological membranes and membrane proteins.
